Coolest color by number coloring pages I've ever seen!

I really like this piece as the artist picked out certain words on the page to make his own saying. This is very interesting how the design of the drawing around the words is and the space throughout the page. This is executed very well. Very cool :)

I love this activity! My former students have created some beautiful poetry with this style.

sneaky test...I feel like the kids need this at this time of the year!

Synonym Rolls~ The common word goes in the middle, and students write 10-12 synonyms along the swirly lines. Color it in lightly with cinnamon and glaze colors and you have a yummy display. Great idea from We've Got a Diem to Carpe!
